Try Dr najeebs videos. But it take so long to watch the entire thing.

Similar thing with me and i think the best way is to read FA and HY Physio (not so necessary) and take as many Qbanks as possible. I think doing Qs will help and watching hundreds of videos without extensive reading is not so useful (PERSONAL EXPERIENCE)!

Good Luck!

Default my help

my exam in 7 days ( i had same problem after done with UW and took NBME . i was scoring low in physiology .
Rx No 1 : read again BRS physiology (2days enough to finish )
Rx No 2 : Kaplan Qbank Physiology only (don start do other stuffs apart from what u intend do from kaplan i.e physiology )
Rx No 3 : FA physiology section in every system .
Rx No 4 : UW physiology questions only (ths is only if u have done UW only once , if more than that u hve done , then not necessary )
how to do all these ?
Combine all together i.e do them simultaneosuly (Rx No 1 , 2 , 3 and 4 )
is it possible ? Yes , only if you real dedicated on ths and u real want solve yar problems within short time but with hard work .
how long will take to finish ?
depends on how many free hours do u have per day . i did for 4 days and was through .
effectiveness of these , any ?
Yes , very effective . believe me , i was victim as you are now in physiology .
ALL THA BEST ./
